    What is the difference between the SMIC and RMI.
    I thought SMIC was minimum wage and RMI is a benefit for those looking for work.
    My french assistant (ashamedly) doesn't know.

    Yep, you're right. The SMIC (Salaire minimum interprofessionnel de croissance) is the minimum wage in France, which I believe is about €8,70 an hour at the moment (not sure though!).

    The RMI (Revenu minimum d'insertion) is a form of social welfare for the unemployed. However, I believe it carries some quite strict conditions that have to be met in order to qualify for it.
